Joshua led God's people
after Moses died. Joshua brought the people into the land that God had promised
to them. And he commanded their army in many battles against evil nations. God
helped Joshua to win these battles. Joshua's first battle was the battle of Jericho (Joshua 6).
Joshua also directed the
people to obey God's law (Joshua 5, Joshua 7 and Joshua 24). The Book of Joshua
also contains records about the division of land (Joshua chapters 13-21).
The Book of Joshua is a
history book from the Bible's Old Testament.
